Pittsburgh's most trusted medical card provider

Highly recommend, great service. A doctor from my area interviewed me within an hour of application. I do have a chronic condition that I am qualified for. They are professional and prompt with their responses to inquiries and I was impressed. The doctor was very good and understood my needs and how much chronic pain I live with. Thank you for providing a valuable service.

I was able to apply for the card within 24 hours of my Dr. Call. Did it all online and was even less expensive than the "patient drives" without wondering if they are approving me for the money or if it will actually help me. Thank you! I will recommend you to everyone.

Getting my license was a very big step for me so finding this site was a blessing. Signing up was easy and the virtual visit was very nice and pleasant. The Dr was very nice and understanding. I got my approval really quickly and was able to apply with state the next afternoon. All in all a really good experience.
